Gleason Lake
This home is located on a beautiful, wooded, private lot on Gleason Lake. The site, though breathtaking, presented several challenges for both design and construction. We pride ourselves on site planning, and this site offered plenty of opportunities to test us.

Bounded on one side by a lake, and the other by a wetland, it offered a limited footprint for building, even though it was over two acres. In addition, there were steep slopes down to the wetland and the lake. The design team was able to overcome these hurdles and come up with a plan that took advantage of the site and preserved the integrity of the environment. Now the house looks as if it has always been there.

The soft lines and curves of the exterior make the home feel a part of the landscape and give it a very warm and welcoming feel as you approach it. The wood, stucco, and stone exterior blend perfectly with the landscape which features natural boulder retaining walls, and many native plantings.

This home has many outstanding features. It's nearly 7,000 square feet design includes many vaulted ceilings, beamed ceilings, beadboard ceilings, exposed truss beams, alder and cherry woodwork, beautiful hardwood and stone-floors, granite countertops, arched openings and windows, as well as an elevator.
